The Scarlett 18i6 comes with Scarlett MixControl, an 18 x 6 DSP mixer. The software lets you create six separate mixes with ultra-low latency, routing any combination of input signals and sequencer outputs to any of the Scarlett 18i6 outputs. Track, monitor and mix as quickly as possible with intuitive one-click configurations.
The two award-winning Focusrite preamps give you low noise and distortion, and the cutting-edge digital conversion captures the audio with pristine quality. 16 additional inputs mean you can capture takes without having to constantly repatch your studio.
